"Yes and no. According to Finnish legislation patient files become public when fifty years has passed of his or her death".

Thanks Martti , but where can I found that information?

Thanks mikaFi68 for the translation it is a very valuable for me in my research about my grandfather.

12.6. the unit was in Miettilä.
13.6. I.company was north of Lipolankylä, 2.company nearby Miettilä.
14.6 the batallion was in VT line in Kylä-Paakkola.
17.6. the batallion withdrew north flank of Vuoksi river in Vuosalmi.
18.6. The batallion got the order to withdraw to Vuoksenranta-Käkisalmi line.
19.6. The batallion got the order to withdraw to Lappeenranta. Units were in Antrea in this day.
21.6. The batallion arrived to Lappeenranta, 1.K was in Suoniala in Lemi, and 3.K was in Korpila in Lemi.

mikaFi68 Do you now what date the unit was disbanded?

I was not so impressed by the try to translate the text. Could someone try to translate the text in the correct way from Finnish to English and I will translate it to Swedish, try to ask the old soldiers in Suomi if you know someone who has participated in the war the meaning of the words.

Files are kept at National Archive along with kantakortti. You must fill up the same form and send it to their office.

Thanks Martti for the help.

It´s thirty-five years since my grandfather died. But I will send a request to the National Archive for his files.

I am interested in a specific date, Vuosi 1943, kuukausi 7, päiva 27. According to his Kantakortti/Ansioluettelo was he transferred to 20.SotaS when he was serving with the Rj.P 8 (in Vuokkiniemi) as a komppanian vääpeliksi.

I have also a question about an Finnish article on this page

Does anyone know if 35.Rajakomppanian is one of the two Rajakomppanian that is mentioned in the article.

Names and status of civilians living at Akonlahti, East Karelia, in June 1943. Might do some good for genealogists.

Is it the official one, i.e. kept during the war? Then it should be handed over to the National Archive. You should start by contacting their Sörnäinen office.

Maybe you can loan it for them so they can obtain a digital copy, and ask to have it back then? It would be sad if the diary would be lost in a move between apartments etc as these things happen in life...

Until shown otherwise it was and still is state's property so if we go by the book you will have to hand it over to them. Of course they do not know who you are and where you live so you probably do not have face the justice knocking on your door.

Since the Archive is digitizing their collection it will be probably other way around.
